Blest Resurrection Sunday: The Greatest Blessing Ever

RaenaBelle, hurry up!!! Do you know what today is? It’s Resurrection Sunday!!! Today’s the most Blest Sunday there is. We celebrate the fact that Jesus rose from the dead all those years ago so that all could be saved from their sins and spend eternity in heaven ‘stead of hell. No greater Blessing has ever been given.

          You’re right sissy. It’s purretty amazin’ that God could luvs this world so much that He would send Jesus to die fur us. A world so full of turmoil and evil. Even so, He saw the good and wanted to make sure that everypawdy had the oppurrtunity to turn away from their evil ways and be what He created them to be; children of God. 

 

 Dezi and Raena with the Easter cross frame with He is Risen

 

 

 

Yep Raena, that’s some kind of luv alright. You know, we’re always meowin’ that Blessings come in many forms, all ya’ have to do is take a minute to see ‘em. Each day is a Blessing that no one is guaranteed. The very air that we breathe, even the storms we don’t like are Blessings. As most everpawdy knows, we’ve been really goin’ thru it lately. But, no matter how bad things may look, there’s always a Blessing to give fanks fur. 

 

 Raena gets loving in mommy A's lap

Lap luvvin’ time is a pawsum Blessing. I’s do luvs mine’s mommy.

 

 

          Fur sure sissy. We’ve got a pawsum luvvin’ mommy, a roof over our heads, good food in our bellehs, the greatest furiends in the universe and a new day to meow ‘bout how much we luvs everypawdy. Ya’ know sissy, I’s was kind’a wonderin’ just what this Easter bunny and huntin’ colored eggs have to do with anythin’?. 

 

 Dezi lays in the liberty cat tree

Our pawsum cat tree, what a Blessing.

 

 

Well Raena, they don’t really have anythin’ to do with the resurrection of Jesus; but, the bunny and those colored eggs symbolize furtility and new beginnings. These were symbols used by the pagans of old and just got incor-purrated into Resurrection Sunday a long long time ago. We don’t actually celebrate that way, but lots of peeps do. Mommy says when she was younger, Easter also meant that she got a new dress fur church and peeps in general could put away their old dark wintry clothes and start wearin’ pastels and whites. Did you know there was a time when nopaawdy wore white till Easter time each year? 

 

 Raena stands on scratcher with paw lifted

 

 

 

          Humans sure have some strange customs, sissy. Guess we would’a been outta fashion what with all our white furs. Anyways, it doesn’t really matter how one celebrates today, we purray that you all have a Blest Resurrection Sunday/Easter.

 

We sure do Raena. And meowin’ of Blessings, we received a few material ones this past week that we need to give fanks fur. Fank you awnty Susan fur the green papers. They are always purreciated.

A gift box fur mommy is a welcome Blessing

 

 

          Yep sissy, and fanky fank ya’ to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme fur the pawsum boxes. They were full of yummy goodies. The foto doesn’t show everythin’. There was 2 full boxes of goodies. Mommy even shared a string cheese with me. I’s do luvs me some cheese. MOL Not as much as I’s luvs rabbit, but it’s fur sure in mine’s top ten fave foods.

 

And did you see those cutesy little socklettes they sent to mommy, Raena? She luvved ‘em.

 

          And don’t furget the green papers, sissy. They wanna help us get to BlogPaws almost as much as we wanna go.

We’ve got our paws crossed that’s fur sure. Anyways, we need to wrap this up. It’s the last day of Campmeetin’ at our church. We are fur sure the most Blest kitties in the universe. Fank you all fur bein’ our furiends and pawrt of our family. We luv you all and purray that God will meet your every need. As always, we wanna remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.

 

          And don’t furget sissy, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies

Chatting Cats: We’ve Got A New Ride

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. We’ve got a cool new ride!!! 

 

 Gen7 Jogger Pet stroller assembled

 

 

 

          Raena, what are you doin’? You know we try to save our blessings fur our Blest Sunday postys. 

 

 Raena checks out the new Gen7 Jogger stroller

 

 

 

I’s too x’cited, sissy. You can save what you wanna meow ‘bout it till Sunday ifin ya’ want. But, I’s meowin’ ‘bout it today. I’s been ridin’ in that cramped old carrier fur too long. We’ve had a few sunny days that were great fur strollin’, but here we sat hangin’ in the house ‘stead of out enjoyin’ the furesh air and huntin’ fur bunnies. 

 

Dezi checks out stroller while RAena stands on side looking up

 

 

 

          And whose fault is that?

 

 Raena in stroller

 

 

 

It’s not all mine’s fault sissy. Besides, it’s not like it was in purristine condition when I’s was born. Mommy said you and your sis Lexi had already broken the board that went across the bottom cuz ya’ll were too heavy fur it. And like ya’ll, I’s never would’a broke the stroller on purrpuss; I’s luvs goin’ fur strolls with mommy too much. 

 

 Dezi looking out from stroller

 

 

 

          Well at least we could still use it when sis Lexi and me snapped the bottom board. When you broke it, there was no more strollin’ fur any kitty. Me sure did miss it. When me was little and used to go with mommy, me always had to ride in that cramped carrier. You got lucky and came here long after we were already enjoyin’ the fureedom the stroller gives us. So the way me sees it, is that you were just payin’ your dues like all the Service kitties befur you. Anyways, me’s glad we got a new ride too. And this one shouldn’t break. Me heard mommy say it could hold up to 75 pounds. That means both of us can ride at the same time.

 

 Raena jumps into stroller from floor

Uh, Mommy?! It’s really big, but I’s can still jump in on mine’s own.

 

 

 

And we could even gain a few pounds. MOL That Gen7 Pets makes a mighty fine stroller. It’s so comfy. And did you see that our tires are bigger than the ones on mommy’s wheelchair? I’s bet there ain’t nowhere we can’t go now. Ya’ know, Oklahoma has a lot of really bad roads and sidewalks. And we’ve got lots of dirt and holes too. That kind’a terrain can be hard on wheels and tires. Mommy says the wheels on our new stroller were meant fur that stuff. It is called a jogger after all.

          Yeah Raena, and me can’t wait to go fur our furst stroll. We were s’posed to go yesfurday, but it took mommy a little longer to put it together than she x’spected; and we got a late surpurrise notice ‘bout a inspection fur today. That meant mommy had to try to do a little cleanin’ last night. Needless to say, she didn’t get much done, we should’a went fur that stroll instead.

 

 Raena looks down over the edge of the new stroller

That sure is a long way down.

 

 

 

I’s agree, sissy. Ya’ know, a lot of our furiends are gettin’ strollers of their own. Wouldn’t it be cool ifin we could all for fur a stroll together? We get asked a lot ‘bout whether or not we would recommend peeps gettin’ their kitties a stroller. And we totally think they’re a great way fur kitty to spend some time in the great outdoors while still bein’ safe. And, takin’ kitty fur a stroll even lets our peeps get a little exercise. We do recommend doin’ your homework befur buyin’ one tho’. Ya’ wanna make sure it’ll hold kitty and be sturdy enuff fur kitty to feel safe. We much purrfur the 3 wheeled strollers to those rickety 4 wheelers. Not only do they look sleeker, they maneuver better. As fur whether or not to get one with a zipper closure or velcro, we can only meow ‘bout what we know. We’ve only had zipper ones, and we really do recommend the Gen7 strollers. Our old stroller had gaps t’ween where the zipper ended and met the suppurrt bars. And anypawdy who knows kitties knows, ifin kitty can fit their head thru a space, they’ll squeeze their whole body thru somehow.

          That’s so true Raena. More than once we’ve poked our head and front paws out the gaps on that stroller. Me has a feelin’ that’s not gonna be pawssible anymore. Me didn’t see any gaps in our new stroller. But just in case, it’s always good to tether kitty into the stroller with the purrvided D rings. Even the calmest of kitties can get spooked. Strollin’ should be fun. We also recommend keepin’ the stroller closed, least till kitty gets comfy enuff not to try to jump out. As fur the assembly required, ifin mommy can do it, anypawdy can. Usually it’s just a matter of attachin’ the wheels. You’ve just got to make sure everythin’ gets locked into place. ya’ don’t want a wheel fallin’ off on your furst stroll. And altho’ we luv that our stroller matches our eyes, color choice shouldn’t dictate the stroller you choose. Quality strollers usually only come in a few purrimary colors, like red, blue and black. That means there’s no purrple strollers fur us. You can get creative and trick yours out any way ya’ want.

Are we gonna do that with ours sissy? I’s not sure what that means ‘zactly, but I’s like the sound of it.

          Mommy says we can Raena. Just ‘member, it’s gotta be tasteful. We are Southern Belles after all.

 

Tasteful huh? Are we gonna put treats all over it? 

 

          (Dezi shakes her head.) We’ll meow ‘bout it later Raena. Let’s just say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme fur our new ride and get ready to go fur a stroll.

 

 Animated thank you rose

 

 

 

I’s with ya’ sissy. Can we meow ‘bout what to call it too?

 

This is not a sponsored post. We received our new Gen7 Jogger from an amazing awnty and just thought we’d tell ya’ more ‘bout how to pick the right stroller fur your pets.

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Do we have a deal fur you today. We’re so x’cited to be writin’ this review. And even more x’cited to be hostin’ a give away. We so luvs to share, ‘specially when it’s somethin’ every kitty needs. What is it you might ask? Y, I’s talkin’ ‘bout a Scratcher. And not just any o’le Scratcher, but a well built, sturdy, tall, sisal Scratcher.

 

 Dezi with Scratching post

 

 

 

 

          Don’t furget Raena, it’s a Scratcher that would look good in any home’s décor. And, with Christmas just ‘round the corner, it would make a great gift fur any home with a kitty. 

 

 

 Raena lays on scratching post

 

 

 

Fanky fanks sissy. You’re right, the Frisco 33.5” Scratching Post would look great in any home. It’s truly a piece of furniture fur kitty. We meowed ‘bout the impurrtance of Scratchin’ fur all kitties in our Service Cat Monday posty this week. Ifin ya’ missed it, you can read it here. We included Trainin’ Tips to help those dealing with inappropriate Scratching. Whether that’s your issue or not, we’ve got a great Scratcher to meow to you ‘bout today. And, fanky fanks to Chewy, one of our pawsum American readers is gonna have the chance to get one of these Scratchers fur yourself.

          We’re really x’cited ‘bout that Raena. But, we need to let everypawdy know a bit ‘bout this Scratcher. The Frisco 33.5” Scratching Post comes in 2 colors, cream and brown. As most of ya’ know by now, mommy likes the browns and earthy colors, so we got our Scratcher in brown. Obviously, the whole Scratcher isn’t brown, cuz the biggest Scratchin’ surface is made of Sisal.

Don’t worry tho’ ifin ya’ like to Scratch carpet, there’s purrlenty of room fur that too. The Scratcher arrived in pieces with everythin’ one needs to assemble it. And let me meow, ifin mommy can put it together, anypawdy can. The box included 4 wooden pieces, screws and an “L” wrench, as well as step by step, easy to read instructions. They even have fotos. MOL   The carpeted base came in 2 parts that attach to the bottom of the Sisal post thru’ purr-drilled holes. Same with the top. Once attached, the base measures 16” X 16”. That makes a nice sturdy piece fur any house kitty. The base and top (7.5” X 7.5”) are made of wood and covered in a nice plush carpet. The Sisal covered post is a 33” tall, 5.5” thick piece of wood.

          Purretty much every inch of the Frisco Scratcher is Scratchable, Raena. It only took mommy ‘bout 10 to 15 minutes to unpack it and put it together. Even with our help

 

 Raena sniffs scratching post

A little nip and vine fur encouragement. As ifin I’s needed any. MOL

 

 

 

That’s true sissy. I’s was a great help. I’s checked out every piece as mommy attached it befur checkin’ out the final purroduct. Mommy did a good job. The Frisco 33.5” Scratching Post is on sale fur $33.99. We gotta be honest and say that we really didn’t x’pect much fur that purrice point. We were purrleasantly surpurrised by the high quality of materials, and size. As Ragdolls and vertical Scratchers, we need a tall but sturdy place to sharpen our claws. The Frisco Scratcher fur sure meets those needs. It’s by far much more than we ever x’pected, and well worth twice the purrice. 

 

 Raena licks paw while laying on scratching post

That’s some good stuffs. I’s gonna luvs this new Scratcher.

 

 

 

          Yep Raena, we can get a full stretch on the post even tho’ mommy didn’t actually get any fotos of that. And, with the Sisal bein’ on all sides, we could even use it at the same time. This is a Scratcher fur kitties of all ages and size. And, it doesn’t actually take up a lot of space, so ifin ya’ live in a small home like us, it’s a great option. ‘Member, all kitties have the need to Scratch.

 

Raena lays in front of scratching postYa’ wanna come scratch sissy?
